  • The National Razor says:

    Projecting our current position forward I see a world where machines run everything for the benefit of a few while the rest of us languish in prisons with robot guards. Eat the rich!

  • Still, this guy has not realized that he belongs to one of those lovely GREEDY race that doesn't care about rest of the ecology on the planet. Lets realize Mars on Earth very soon.

  • Learn how to hang around your family members instead of focus on members- only- game players. They have been doing but you worked for them very hard. You thought they serve you but theyy learned from you advanced skill from the bottom floors watching your shows. You needed them to do minial jobs in your territories making you feel Masterkings. But they were kings children before you hunt animals to make leather shoes and clothes to shields to invade to get back your inventions. What are your inventions?? Making irons or squeeze oils??

  • Some of the TED Talks are freaking LAME!

    Just like this one. They suck you in, telling you, "Hey we have a problem."
    Yet they never give the listeners a solution, or even brain storming ideas.
    They let you know the 'why' something is wrong, but never give us the 'how' or 'what'.
    The how to solve it or what to do.

  • I never will understand how people are worried about blue collar labor jobs disappearing. Those robots and machines that "take" your job on the factory floor will break down just like any other piece of mechanical equipment. so when they start to take the jobs of your peers thats when you start to set aside some money to get vocational trained to fix the machines. now even if they take your current job you will still have a job as the only guy smart enough to have learned to fix the machines.

  • Well, good thing I am a "Ted". I have been telling people around me they have to climb the stairs into non-repetitive/creative/technological job instead of keeping some sort of simple 8h/day job to pay the bills. Statistics he presented are, I believe, true all over the world becouse of economy that is so interconnected. "Bills" in my country were also fine 30 years ago. Today…They are worse and worse off. While I am better and better. And it looks like the trends is actually even accelerating. 7 years ago I was making "X" amount of money as some of my colegues. Today most of them make "0,8X" while I make "4X". In this world you cannot stay still otherwise it is gonna run over you. Greetings from Czech Republic.

  • Michael Epstein says:

    Ever since at least 1980, We the People of planet Earth have had the capability of providing the highest quality of food, the highest quality of clothing, the highest quality of shelter, the highest quality of health care, and the highest quality of education for each and every man, woman and child on the face of the Earth, and to do it in such a way that was in Harmony with Nature.

    We already have gazillions of practical creative solutions.

    What we don’t have here in the USA is at least 80 million individuals who are well-informed, free of disinformation and misinformation, on all the major issues of today AND devoting their time, energy, resources, and talents to the political process to make sure that only the most Loving/most Wise among us become our public servants.

    Then and only then will we be in a position to actually implement them on a grand scale and finally begin the process of transitioning to a Whole New Way of Living rooted in Love and Wisdom, with little or no need for government.

  • Just start supporting small local businesses and keep money in your local economy, everytime you purchase something from a multinational such as Starbucks you're money is lost to a corporate black hole, the circular flow of wealth has turned into an upwards pyramid flow of wealth, you can stop it with your wallet

  • hey ,if anyone else needs to find out about how to make wine at home step by step try Corbandy Tasty Wine Crusher (just google it ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my brother in law got excellent results with it.

  • Well here's someone who doesn't think outside the box. Remember how good communism sounded on paper? Well look different it was when applied

  • Your title uses the word 'like' as a preposition. I don't know if you're care about being grammatically correct but if you do, here's part of the rule. Do not end sentences with a preposition that has less than five letters. If your preposition has less than five letter then it needs to be the first word of a prepositional phrase not the last word of a sentence. If your title hadn't been in the form of a question you could be grammatically correct.

  • Youtube Video Ranker says:

  • Such a liar, denier and mental, So Called society won’t be like That, I won’t live In one ran by stupid machine’s everywhere That are all so Called fully automated.

  • Zestamore Garcia says:

    What year is the second indurstrialization going to happen? I want to be able to sit and do nothing all day because of robots. If it's going to happen soon I'll just wait to get a job

  • End of humanity..robots will work while we roam around like zombies. It's clear that motherfuckers are only focused machine propserity and not human prosperity. What will humans be used for??

  • Khaldoun Samman says:

    This man is an updated version of Alvin Toffler: Both of them are cheerleaders of captains of industry posing as "social innovators." Bill one day will hopefully rise up and tame Ted.

  • Was that optimism, or naivete? It's so hard to tell. I see very dark times coming for the middle class on down. A college education doesn't even guarantee a good job in this day and age anymore. And I definitely don't see that improving.

    Until education becomes extremely cheap or free, the middle class common Joe without a college education is in serious trouble.

  • In the '80s and '90s, employers use to train new employees. It was expected that new employees would ask a lot of questions and make mistakes, and that was okay within a healthy range. Today it seems that employers expect new employees to have previously developed work skills and don't invest in on the job training. A lot of work skill is developed previously to employment in college, vocational training programs, and now in elementary schools. Unfortunately, these institutions are focused strongly on children and young adults. I haven't seen any (effective) training or education options available to low-income adults who need to transition into a new career.

  • Fabricio Fercher says:

    Why don't use that technology to global planning them? To bring a higher standard of living for everyone and protect the environment.

  • basically people will have no jobs and they'll sit around drinking coffee all day (coffee is terrible for u) and be bored from morning till night. they'll have nothing to do cause most likely a basic income will be provided to everyone.

  • I don’t know about you but this sounds to me like creepy globalist stuff. I made trucks that drive them selves? I don’t think so

  • Here is how you solve the problem:

    Migrate from an economy that rewards trade and service with monetary return and instead have it where it rewards new ideas and innovations while transitioning to universal basic income.

  • The future is still here. Accept it and start your very own adoption process OR keep complaining. It's everyone's individual choice.

  • Eric Somerset says:

    It's interesting to hear you summarising your Montessori experience: to go out there and to know the world. As a nursery teacher, that's exactly what I want for my students to experience. Nearly six years have passed since this speech has been available here, and the trend is exactly as you describe here. The next question for me is: how to educate children so they find their way through the new economy (name industry 4.0)? What kind of vision and skills they'd need to have?

  • He is my President says:

    Will robots cure cold sores? That’d be cool 😎 feel one coming and when I get em I skip work. Here robot take my job!!

  • alex leonard says:

    B"H… Milton Friedman was against the minimum wage because it was detrimental to employment. your false premise produces crap.

  • He spends 13 minutes telling us we are screwed and then 1 1/2 minutes telling us he has confidence we will be alright lol.

  • ThothHeart Maat says:

    We should stop asking kids what they want to do and leaving it up to them.. kids don't know anything about the world and we intentionally keep them in the dark and then when they turn 18 they're supposed to have figured their whole life out.. we should be encouraging people to do what theyre best at and will give them the best opportunity in life.. no one did this for me and now I'm struggling. We shouldn't be selling college to our kids and putting them into debt.. shouldn't be putting every homeowner in debt.. this is some weird slavery.. we should try to be an actual civilization for our people for a change. One that promotes each other's livlihoods rather than trying to take everything from everyone and tear each other down all the time..

  • never. if you look at history , technology never freed up entire people for freedom. it will be the same, poor will be poor and rich will keep their richies.

  • Martin Cortez Ortiz says:

    …not very inspirational as it clearly sets out the obliteration of the human race…AI replaces human thinking (AI with compassion, love, empathy, consciouness…will never be possible, a human soul can not be designed, engineered, implanted, transported, etc…)…robot-humanoids doing what human beings used to do…end result, an overpopulated, inactive, overheated planet with a diminishing capacity to feed its inhabitants? Not very promising.

  • Maryanne Quenneville says:

    At this point in time it very clear to me that moving forward we all must do our part to educate with facts.

  • Seeing that the Haves haven't done squat to stop the trend of the rapid growth of the Have Nots (a trend whose rate will increase) I have zero expectation that REAL help will ever be applied except only to keep the masses from rioting. This is the way of those who are practicing indifferent avarice, and are sociopathic. In other words, it's going to get a WHOLE LOT harder for the lower 95% and real consideration from the 5% will never be seen. So move out of the city and learn subsistence living and keep a job as long as you can and save.

  • There is the unspoken assumption that there will be a need for everyone even if they cannot do any work. There will be lots of folk on benefits in mass trailer parks, that is until the elite eliminate them in a war.

  • Glynna Schmehl says:

    Yeah, I got mad at a few cashiers and orded from catalogs for a year to show it was possible. What a coinkidink. I also reported to the police that I was being followed. You're so much smarter than us though.

  • Glynna Schmehl says:

    I don't like to talk to live bill collectors on the phone either. They provoke me to talk over them and when I raise my voice they say, "mam,mam,mam."

  • Before implemening guarantee minimum income I think it would be better to think of reduced work week. We can start working 6 hours a day, then, four or three hours a day. It is more psychologically sane and sastifying to work for a living,: the sense of being usefull to society, to see onself as a dependent being is not goof. I think this is an intelligent way to manage the transition. period until new ways be created or emerge that can give dignity to our lifes.
